We’ve waved goodbye to Buenos Aires and are rounding up our posts on the city that became home for nearly two months. With Steve filming in California, I lived with an Argentinian girl and mostly spent my days learning Spanish, practising yoga, writing and working on a project that I’ll be launching sometime soon. I barely left Palermo, enjoying my temporary life as a local in the tree-lined barrio.
My impressions of Buenos Aires were complicated as I missed Steve, and struggled with ‘what the hell am I doing with my life?’ questions. I also yearned for nature and found the pace of city life a little too reminiscent of my home in London. That said, and preponderance of dog poo aside, Buenos Aires won us over. Aside from our friends, such as the wonderful Roberto pictured above, these are our top five favourite things about the city. Also see this Buenos Aires photo tour for some of the more classic things to do in the city.
